Is Maca Safe for Everyone?

A typical 3-5 gram dosage (about one teaspoon per day) is considered safe for most people, with no obvious side effects.

However, some people should exercise caution. These include people with thyroid conditions who are advised to reduce cruciferous vegetables such as maca. This is because this family of vegetables contains substances called goitrogens, which can interfere with normal thyroid function.

Before eating maca, pregnant or breastfeeding women should see their doctor. If you are considering a major dietary change or intend to supplement your diet, please consult with your physician or registered dietitian to ensure that you do so without risk to your health.
